Wheels Turning at Different Speeds for your electric skateboard

It’s completely normal to notice that one wheel moves at a different speed or starts later than the other. The wheels do not necessarily rotate at the same speed. For instance, while turning, the outer wheel turns faster than the inner wheels. The wheels are independently torque controlled and have very small differences in friction. Belts, motors, and bearings will cause the wheels to spin at a different rate when they are upside down and not bearing weight.
